4. When someone denies reality,

when someone denies what actually happened, what do we call that person?

To campaigner Bush in 1980, voodoo economics was Ronald Reagan`s untested, unproven and unwise incantation that tax cuts and domestic spending reductions would yield a balanced budget and an era of unprecedented domestic prosperity and higher productivity.

3. Oh now, Salami, sir, surely you're aware that in politics

what's been said yesterday's disavowed tomorrow.

It's the nature of politics; they're very fluid, always changing.

It'd be nice if stances were somewhat more stable, longer lasting, but they aren't, and so one must accept, adapt, and move on.

I can't think of any specific examples, but I'm pretty sure your gods Obama (both Barack and Michelle), Clinton, Carter, Kennedy, whoever else's asses your side kissed, changed their publicly-stated positions many times over, and as I expect it as inevitable, I don't hold it against them.

8. I remember no new taxes, read my lips.

I remember you can keep your existing health plan.

I remember there is no magical wand when it comes to higher GDP growth.

9. Remember when hiLIARy clinton suggested that obozo was not a US citizen?

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/aug/22/fact-checking-media-yes-clinton-machine-did-start-/

People say thing about their opponents when they are doing the candidate thing.

I can probably in a few minutes find a TON of things democrats said against democrats.

And the fact is Reaganomics WORKED -- just like Trumponomics is working. By every possible measure.

But it does not surprise me you are clutching your pearls that a (now beloved) politician slammed a (now beloved and revered) politician on an issue.

30. Stagnant wages.

More personal and corporate debt.

Fewer people with pensions.

More government debt due to fallen tax revenues.

Companies allowed to raid their pension funds.


Yep, so much winning for workers.

is rhetoric. The reality is Reaganomics was tool to excite the public. The Reagan economy was no different than the classic Keynesian manipations the government had enacted during economic downturns for the previous 60 years.
